Workshop for Safeguarding Staff in Boarding

March 05, 2019

Shrewsbury School


The purpose of the day is to provide a day of focused training and discussion for Designated Safeguarding Leads working in a boarding environment. Frequently the courses run by other external providers are focused on state schools or day schools: our aim is to provide an environment for discussion of some of the key safeguarding issues facing boarders and their teachers.
